I thought I'd dedicate this post to the amazing and legendary Kate Moss.
A model that started her career at the young age of 14, and that managed to stay relevant through out all of these years- and not only that, but she has surpassed her own battles in the public eye no less...
At 17, Kate's fame skyrocketed with the legendary Calvin Klein ads with Mark Whalberg.
She wrote on her book:
"I can still remember asking Paul Cavaco, 'Do you think I should do this Calvin contract?' And he said, 'You know what? You're so small, you might not last. It could be all over in a season! Take the money and run!' I worked at Calvin for eight years, I just didn't know if it was right for me. I thought it might stop me being able to do other things."
Probably one of my favorite friendships of all time: Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. The fashionistas have been close friends for years, and still are.
Johnny Depp and Kate Moss. The couple that started the heroin chic style in the 1990s. Grunge, leather, black. The ultimate 90s fashion couple.
Kate also wrote on her book how hard it was to
"I used to be on my own at airports all the fucking time. It was so incredibly lonely, I was alone a lot at the beginning."
I love this shot. Kate Moss modeled for the streetwear brand Supreme last year.
Kate modeled for the St. Tropez tanning company this year. And she said:
"I have used since it started. Around 15 years ago, the first time I went to Ibiza, I didn't want to be the only white person on the beach so I had a ,"
The supermodel has been on the cover of 32 Vogue Covers!!!!
John Galliano, the model's longtime friend, designed Kate's wedding dress. The dress had a vintage flair and a long veil.
And Manolo Blahnik designed a unique pair of Godichefac sandals with crystals and blue details.
The Kate Moss Book was published last year, and it's the perfect coffee table book. Filled with everything that is Kate, her personal anecdotes and tons of pictures -and some that were never even published before. click here to find it on Amazon
The supermodel's latest endeavor consists of a collection of accessories for Carphone Warehouse, designed by Kate herself. The collection will hit the shelves July 31st, and the blonde beauty said:
"My phone's as much a part of my look as my bag or shoes, and yet there's so little choice out there"
I can't wait to see this collection..!
What do you think of Kate Moss? She is a true style icon that has managed to stay relevant through out more than 25 years. In an industry where young is always better, Kate is still one of the most sought after models today.
Are you a Kate fan? Will you be checking out her Carphone Warehouse collection?
I love the pictures of a young Kate Moss.
